    I knew within minutes of my first consultation with Dr Georgiou that he was the right surgeon for me. As soon as I got off the video call with him I cancelled the consultations I had booked with other surgeons and started planning my trip to Cyprus.
    Dr Georgiou is the most kind and caring person, as well as an amazing surgeon. The hours that he works are insane, checking up on you throughout the day and into the evening.
    The hospital staff and the rest of his team are the same, the care you get is next level.
    I am nearly 6 weeks post op from having the lipoedema removed from the fronts of my legs and I could not be happier.
    The pain and discomfort I had in my legs before surgery has gone completely and as an added bonus, I can see my knees for the first time in over 30 years. I can’t stop looking at them.
    I have further surgeries planned and now wouldn’t trust anyone else to carry these out for me. I can’t wait to feel and see the final results.
    Thank you so much Dr Georgiou, this truly has been life changing.

    I have had three surgeries performed by Dr. Iakovos Georgiou—twice on my legs and once on my back—and the results have been truly outstanding. From our initial online consultation, Dr. Georgiou not only explained my condition, Lipedema, in a clear and professional manner, easing all my concerns, but also demonstrated a warm and friendly communication style that made complex medical information easy to grasp. His dedication to patient care is evident through his diligent follow-up before, during, and after my hospital stays. He always took the time to answer my questions thoroughly, never making me feel rushed and always ensuring I felt cared for and in control. The ease of arranging appointments reflects his organized, patient-centered approach. Having experienced care from other doctors, none have matched Dr. Georgiou’s blend of genuine professionalism, experience, and caring. His thorough follow-up care ensured my recovery stayed on track. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Georgiou to anyone seeking first-class, professional medical attention, especially for complex conditions like Lipedema. Thanks to his confident and caring approach, each surgery seemed to pass in a moment, making him an excellent choice for specialized medical needs.

    I have been following Dr Georgiou and his work for a number of years now, and recently had the privilege of being under his care for lipoedema reduction surgery. Dr Georgiou performed VASER/PAL liposuction using superwet technique to the front side of both legs, under general anaesthesia removing 13.2 liters and then second surgery was same technique to backs of legs removing 11.5 liters.

    Dr Georgiou is a truly exceptional surgeon. His surgical and professional excellence, skill and care, coupled with his dedication to patient needs set him apart. He is genuine, honest, and has the kindest of souls. He is also an excellent communicator, with the most compassionate and empathetic approach, making the entire experience reassuring. But more than that, lipoedema care in the UK has always been a challenge due to the medical community having a lack of knowledge in this condition, and without a clear approach to medical care and support. So when you meet a surgeon like Dr Georgiou, well it is lifechanging. To be heard, understood, and fully supported throughout the prep, the surgery, and just as importantly post-surgery was amazing! Words really don’t seem enough but if you are considering lipoedema reduction surgery then I highly recommend Dr Georgiou and the wider team at GMI for anyone seeking excellent medical care with a truly human touch. I have just had my second surgery but already the results are changing my life !!
